We have put together a pricing comparison between Linux/Open Source technologies and Windows/Microsoft's technologies for sample organisations of size 50, 100 and 250 staff. We are targeting non-IT organisational/financial management within companies. We consider this a draft document and seek your readers' comments and feedback. We feel that with the current belt-tighening within the IT industry, if we can convince management to spend more money on IT staff payroll (even hiring more staff) rather than pay for ever-spiralling Microsoft licences, we all win. Note, this is a largish PDF file. Feel free to mirror.
